Cupcakes and Macarons oh my…
Standing in the class room environment at Karricks Institute attending a cupcake decorating and macaron master class in not how I normally spend my Saturday's. But it was a very nice change. Lamb and I booked the class using a coupon website (living social) way back in December and this was one of the first classes we were able to get in to - these things sold like hotcakes, well like cupcakes anyway! The class ran from 10-4pm and I was completely excited about becoming a master of the macaron ... Read More

Cupcakes by Paolo…
Cupcakes are a topic I could happily discuss with you for some time, so when I had the chance to try out one of Melbourne new buzz cupcakeries, Cupcakes by Paolo, I was quite excited.    Bean, Dino and I piled into the car and headed off to theire West Footscray Cupcakes by Paolo shoppe (about a twenty five minute drive from the CBD) ready to soak in the cupcakey goodness. We arrived at the store sitting in a set of a few little shops on the edge of a busy road where a few guys were ... Read More

On a sugar high yet? Am grieved to say today is the last day of my cupcake-a-thon! Naturally, I will always be on the lookout for great cupcakes but five in a row I think is more than enough to tide us over for some time, yes? So without further ado let me introduce you to Cupcake Central. It's been open for about eleven weeks now in the newest section of the Dining Hall at Melbourne Central (Their Hawthorne store has been open about a year). It has an AMZING and rotating "cupcake central calendar" ... Read More

Happy Cupcake Week! Fancy a lil cupcake? Little Cupcakes is perhaps the first of Melbourne's cupcake cafes (how strawberry shortcake does that sound?) and is totally cute! I believe it opened in 2007 with the first store opening on Degrave but now there are three in the city. I had walked past the sweet little shop a number of times and it always made me smile with it's gorgeous window display making it look like something from a Disney village (I am not sure if that's the right term but ...

I wouldn't want to put a break in the cupcake-a-thon so today I thought I would take you back to Cristina Re, Where a Girl Goes. This is one of the most delightfully girly shops/cafes I have ever walked into. In the original post HERE I spoke about the cupcakes and macrons but only glanced over the fun sounding classes they have on offer. Perhaps while delighting in cupcakes you could take one of the Cristina Re workshops- ...could you make an origami cupcake? Or card making ... Read More

Cupcakes, Cupcakes, Cupcakes – Day Two…
I remember when I first realized cupcakes were about to take over Melbourne. One afternoon my sister appeared on my doorway clutching bags of city shopping and a small box. That small box contained two cupcakes from the newly opened Cupcake Bakery in Melbourne Central. Shopping was forgotten and we set the box down on the counter to admire the two beautiful cupcakes inside. She had choses a carrot cupcake (brilliant sister) and some other flavour - perhaps vanilla Choc? We put the kettle to boil, ... Read More
